This new pathway will help international student graduates start their business and obtain Canadian permanent residence. For those who want to start a business in the province, Saskatchewan opened a new pathway for International Graduates of Post-Secondary institutions.
The SINP Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program unveiled the new International Graduate Entrepreneur Category on December 3. This supports Saskatchewan's Growth Plan for 2020-2030 that includes a focus on increasing the number of skilled and entrepreneurial newcomers in the province. This category is also for international graduates of full-time, post-secondary degree or diploma programs of at least two years in length. Those who are approved will have to operate and manage a business in Saskatchewan for at least one year and own at least one-third of the equity in a qualified business in order to be eligible for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.
